Riding the wave of its CES announcements buzz, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has added the fanciful Tim Burton hit 'Big Fish' to its March Blu-ray line-up.

The critically-acclaimed drama will debut on high-def on March 20 as a BD-25 single-layer disc. Tech specs include a 1080p/MPEG-2 transfer and both uncompressed PCM and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround tracks.

Supplements are pretty slim, though, with an audio commentary by director Tim Burton the sole extra.

Sony has set a $28.95 list price for the release.

The studio has done some last-minute shifting of its February Blu-ray line-up as well. Pulled from the schedule is 'Glory,' the Oscar-winning Civil War epic. Originally due on February 20, the title is now delayed with no new street date. We'll keep you posted.
